Your Tp sensor is faulty it needs to be changed it is sending wrong signal to the ICU. It is suppose to send the right position of the throttle so that the engine is supplied with the right fuel quantity that will enable it to start and run efficiently.

How do I adjust the throttle position sensor on my 93 cadillac seville sls 4.9l engine?


4.5 And 4.9L Engines
  1. Remove the air cleaner.
  2. Remove the TP sensor connector.
  3. Unscrew the 2 TP sensor attaching screws and retainers, and remove the TP sensor.

To install:
  1. With the throttle valve in the normal closed idle position, install the TP sensor on the throttle body assembly.
  2. Install 2 TP sensor attaching screws with retainers. Do not tighten the screw until the TP sensor is adjusted.
  3. Install the TP Sensor connector. Adjust the TP Sensor and perform the idle learn procedure.
  4. To Perform the TP sensor adjustment.
    1. Disable the generator by grounding the green harness connector plug adjacent to the generator.
    2. Start the engine, enter diagnostics, and select PCM override PS103 'ISC Actuator'
    3. Press the 'COOLER' button on the CCP to retract the ISC Actuator. This action will disengage the A/C compressor and command the EGR 'OFF'. The Climate control center display will change from '50 to 00'. The ISC Actuator will slowly retract (about 20 seconds) to a fully retracted position. Verify that the throttle lever is resting on the minimum idle speed screw. With the ISC Actuator plunger fully retracted, disconnect the ISC harness.
    4. Select the PCM data PD01, 'TP Sensor', while still in PCM override PS03. Note the throttle position (in degrees) displayed on PCM parameter PD01.
    5. (-0.5° TO + 0.5°)

      No TP sensor adjustment required. Reattach the ISC Actuator harness and disconnect the grounding wire at the generator.
    6. TP Sensor (-10.0° TO -0.6°) or TP Sensor (+ 0.6° TO + 90.0°) TP Sensor adjustment required.

  5. With the engine 'OFF' and the ignition 'ON', reenter diagnostics and select PCM override PS03 'ISC Actuator'. Press the 'COOLER' button to retract the ISC Actuator the minimum air setting.
    1. Loosen the TP sensor screws just enough to permit the sensor to be rotated. Open the throttle slightly and allow the throttle lever to snap shut against the minimum air screw. Adjust the TP sensor so the parameter display is 0°. Tighten the TP sensor mounting screws with the sensor in the adjusted position. Recheck the parameter to be sure the TP sensor parameter is (-0.5° to + 0.5).
    2. Install the air cleaner.

  • Unique Idle Concerns:
    • Fast Idle
  • Additional Drivability Concerns:
    • Diesels/Runs On
Note: If vehicle runs normally after the ignition key is turned OFF, check for damaged ignition switch, IGN RUN circuit short to power, VPWR circuit short to power, etc. Refer to applicable Wiring Diagram and/or Workshop Manual.
SYSTEM/COMPONENT REFERENCE (Section 5 Pinpoint Test unless noted)
  • Base engine air leaks, including proper sealing of intake manifold and components/vacuum lines attached to intake air (such as the PCV, EGR or IAC valve/vacuum lines).
  • Visual, Engine System - General Information Section 303 of the Workshop Manual.
  • Verify engine operates at normal temperature.
  • Visual (refer to Symptom Index, or Engine Cooling Section 303 of Workshop Manual, to diagnose any cooling system concerns that are present).
  • Fast idle concerns:
  • Key on, engine off, monitor TP MODE PID while wiggling TP sensor circuits. TP MODE PID can also be monitored during vehicle drive. With throttle closed, TP MODE PID must be C/T (closed throttle).
  • TP Mode PID is not C/T with throttle closed: NOTE: At vehicle start, the TPREL will begin at about 1.25 volts, and count down to the lowest TP V value seen since engine start. If the TP V value goes below the "normal" range, then increases again, TPREL will set to the lower voltage. If TP V is about 0.04 volts greater than the TPREL value at closed throttle, the PCM will go into part throttle mode.
  • Monitor TP V and TPREL PIDs for sudden changes while checking for intermittent TP circuit/connector concerns. Also check for loose/worn throttle plates. If no concern is found, GO to Z1 in Section 5.
  • Intake Air System (air leaks)
  • GO to HU1
  • Idle Air Control (IAC) System
  • GO to KE1
  • Additional Testing
  • GO to Z1
Do you know what these thing's are that I have listed above ? Mostly the TP - throttle position sensor . These are known to cause this type of problem . Has it ever been changed before ?

How do I fix starting problems with my car?


I can think of a few thing's that could cause this , a mass air flow sensor, crankshaft position sensor , coolant temp sensor. If the check engine light comes on there should be a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the PCM - engine computer ! I'd find a parts that will check for codes an go from there . unless you have a factory scan tool that will check engine data parameters !
Hard Start
Inspection/Test
Action

DEFINITION: Engine cranks OK, but does not start for a long time. Does eventually run, or may start but immediately dies.

Preliminary
• Refer to Important Preliminary Checks Before Starting in Symptoms - Engine Controls .
• Search for bulletins.

Sensor/System
• Inspect the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor for being shifted in value. Install the scan tool and compare the displayed engine coolant temperature with the intake air temperature on a cold engine. Check the resistance of the ECT sensor if the engine coolant temperature is not within ±3°C (5°F) of intake air temperature (IAT). Refer to Temperature Versus Resistance . If the ECT sensor resistance is not within the specification, refer to DTC P0117 or DTC P0118 .
• Inspect the mass air flow (MAF) sensor and connections.
• Inspect the operation of the idle air control (IAC) valve. Refer to Idle Air Control (IAC) System Diagnosis
• Using the scan tool, monitor the throttle position (TP) sensor voltage. The TP sensor voltage should be less than 0.9 volts with a closed throttle. If the TP sensor voltage is more than 0.9 volts, inspect the throttle body and accelerator cables for binding.
• Inspect for the proper operation of the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. Refer to Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) System Description

Fuel System
• Inspect the operation of the fuel pump. The pump should turn ON for approximately 2 seconds when the ignition is turned ON. Refer to Fuel Pump Electrical Circuit Diagnosis
• Inspect for incorrect fuel pressure. Refer to Fuel System Diagnosis .
• Inspect the fuel injectors and related fuses. Refer to Fuel Injector Solenoid Coil Test , and Fuel Injector Balance Test with Tech 2 or Fuel Injector Balance Test with Special Tool .
• Test for fuel contamination. Refer to Alcohol/Contaminants-in-Fuel Diagnosis .

Ignition System
• Inspect the operation of crankshaft position (CKP) sensors A and B.
• Test for proper ignition voltage output using the J 26792 Spark Tester .
• Inspect for damaged ignition coils within the ignition coil module assemblies.
• Inspect for damaged or misaligned spark plug boots.
• Inspect for a missing or damaged ignition module ground spring.
• Inspect the spark plugs. Refer to Spark Plug Inspection .

Engine Mechanical
• Excessive oil in combustion chamber-leaking valve seals. Refer to Oil Consumption Diagnosis in Engine Mechanical 4.6L.
• Inspect for low cylinder compression. Refer to Engine Compression Test in Engine Mechanical 4.6L.

What's this ? gaugesax out
P0123 - Throttle Position (TP) Circuit High Input The TP sensor circuit is monitored by the PCM for a high TP rotation angle (or voltage) input through the comprehensive component monitor (CCM). If during key ON engine OFF or key ON engine running the TP rotation angle (or voltage) changes above maximum calibrated limit, the test fails.
  • TP sensor not seated properly
  • TP circuit short to PWR
  • TP circuit short to ETCREF
  • SIG RTN circuit open to TP sensor
  • Damaged TP sensor
  • Damaged PCM
A TP PID (TP V PID) reading greater than 93% (4.65 volts) in key ON engine OFF, continuous memory or key ON engine running indicates a hard fault. P0123 - ETC Throttle Position (TP1) sensor Circuit High Input The ETC TP sensor 1 was flagged as fault status by the PCM indicating high voltage.
  • ETC TP1 sensor harness shorted to VREF
  • ETC TP1 sensor harness shorted to PWR
  • Damaged TP1 sensor
  • VREF circuit shorted to TP1 sensor
Drive vehicle, bring to a stop, turn key OFF. Start vehicle, run key ON engine running self-test at idle. Access KOER diagnostic trouble codes on scan tool.
P0193 - Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor Circuit High Input (FRP) The comprehensive component monitor (CCM) monitors the FRP sensor circuit to the PCM for high voltage. If voltage were to fall below a calibrated limit and a calibrated amount of time during testing, the test will fail.
  • FRP signal shorted to VREF or VPWR.
  • FRP signal open (gasoline only)
  • Low fuel pressure (NG only)
  • Damaged FRP sensor.
  • Damaged PCM.
  • High fuel pressure (caused by damaged fuel pressure regulator) NG.
A FRP PID value during KOER or KOEO less than 0.3 volts for gasoline or 0.5 volts for natural gas vehicles (NG) would indicate a hard fault. P0340 - Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1) The test fails when the PCM can no longer detect the signal from the CMP sensor on Bank 1.
  • CMP circuit open
  • CMP circuit short to GND
  • CMP circuit short to PWR
  • SIG RTN open (VR sensor)
  • CMP GND open (Hall effect sensor)
  • CMP misinstalled (Hall effect sensor)
  • Damaged CMP sensor shielding
  • Damaged CMP sensor
  • Damaged PCM
Harness routing, harness alterations, improper shielding, or electrical interference from other improperly functioning systems may have intermittent impact on the CMP signal.
P0705 TR Sensor TR Circuit Failure TR circuits, indicating an invalid pattern in TR_D. Condition caused by a short to ground or an open in P/N, D, R, 2 or 1 circuits. Open in the taillamp ground circuit. This DTC can be set by an incorrectly adjusted TR sensor. Increase in control pressure (harsh shifts). Defaults to D for an invalid position. MIL on.

Hi Code P 0217 does point to the thermostat but it also points to the wiring, cooling system, and the temperature sensor, to check the thermostat start engine then once the temperature gauge in the car reaches normal the thermostat should open and the top hose that goes into the radiator will warm up quickly as the thermostat opens, if the thermostat is stuck in it's open position the top hose will start warming up before the engine reaches it's working temperature, hopefully i have explained it clearly,
